About Jim Nelson
My name is Jim Nelson and I’m from Albuquerque, NM. I’m a helicopter pilot and just retired after 32 years in the Military. The Casita has been a dream project of mine for many years. Staying in the Casita reminds me what life is really about. The people of La Paz don’t seem to let time rule them, their stress levels are way down or almost nonexistent. If you really want to unwind, and enjoy privacy, then the Casita is for you.
Jim Nelson purchased this House in 2004
Why Jim Nelson chose La Paz
I bought the lot and built the Casita in the La Paz area because I had such a great time visiting La Paz. The board walk in La Paz is by far the most beautiful I’ve seen to include anywhere in the Caribbean. I always feel a sense of adventure when I’m in La Paz and doing things in Baja. Baja has given my family and friends memories they’ll never forget. I’ve been traveling around the world over for 30 years, and I still love feeling of true peace and tranquility, when I’m staying at the Casita.
What makes this House unique
I love watching the sunrise over the water with the City of La Paz in the back ground, it's a great way to start a day. I also love to lay out at night next to the gas fire pit and star gaze... The new spa at night is also great. The Casita sits on 1.5 acres with over a 300 plants and trees. There are always birds to watch on the beach and humming birds around the casita. The Casita is so private that I’m not concerned about what I’m wearing, no one will know or care. Its great being able to walk, to one of the restaurants in the area and not have to drive all the time. The Casita is very laid back, peaceful and has a feeling of no worries. Living in the moment.

Sunshine, Snorkeling, and Siestas
Jim's property is the perfect property for a relaxing getaway! At the sleepier end of La Paz, we enjoyed breathtaking sunrises every morning, afternoon dips in the pool once the heat set in, and a restful night's sleep in a comfy bed. The kitchen had everything we needed and the bathroom was big with both a walk-in tiled shower and a tub. El Centenario offers a coffee shop I can't recommend more, Cafe Exquisito, surprising good pizza at El Mezquite Verde, and everyone was very friendly and tolerant of my terrible Spanish. Be sure to do an Isla Espíritu Santo tour as well as take a drive to Playa El Tecolote, both were amazing! Thank you, Jim, for a wonderful vacation.
Thanks Amanda for taking the time to do a nice review. I sincerely hope you return again. The property is a little peace of heaven, very relaxing. I also love the small restaurants that are within walking distance of the casita. Jorge and I are doing a lot of improvements this summer to make the casita even better. You are right about the beautiful sunrises every morning, people love to sip their coffee in the morning and watch the sunlight reflection on the Bay of La Paz. I hope you return. Have a great 2019 summer. Jim

Hi Andrea, I glad you enjoyed your stay at the casita. We are planning a lot of improvements this summer. Your welcome back anytime. Have a great 2019 summer. Jim
As always we had the best relaxing time at the casita! Definitely planning next trip here!
Thanks Bryan, I’m glad you both enjoyed the casita. The casita is a very relaxing place. This summer we’re going to even make the property better and more relaxing. Have a great 2019 summer. Jim
Wonderful Stay March 2019
My wife and I spent a very special week at La Casita. The place was clean and fully stocked with everything we needed. We did donate an extra kitchen towel, a rubber spatula, and a guest book. Jim was very responsive and easy to work with to book our stay.
We spent mornings in the hammock and drinking coffee poolside. The pool was a wonderful way to cool off as the day warmed up. In the evenings we cooked dinner and ate on the roof of the Grand Casa where we would watch the many bird neighbors and beautiful sunsets. After dinners we would sit by the fire pit, cocktail in the hot tub and play epic games of dominos. Jorge is great as the local manager, he was very polite and a great host at El Mezquite Verde. We slept with the sliding doors open and listened to the geckos at night. In the morning we woke to the songs of the many local birds.
We spent one day swimming with whale sharks courtesy of VIP Tours, another day at Balandra Beach and took many excursions into La Paz to stroll the Malecon. Take the beach chairs and the umbrella when you go to the beach as the palapas fill up with families early in the morning. Highly recommend eating dinner on the beach in Tecolote at Palapa Azul. We were sad to leave, but left with many fond memories of our romantic getaway at La Casita.
Clean , well maintained.
Different Restaurants, road side stands and convenience stores are within walking distance. There are numerous Beautiful beaches all around the area. Fishing year round is always good. Diving and snorkeling is great. It's important to rent a car to truly esperance Baja. Please, don’t hesitate to call me if you want to know more about the area.
